Archie Comics has sent us a Jughead 3 Preview, so we thought we'd pass it along to you. Jughead has impressed us with how well it's given us the feel of classic Jughead stories, yet being a little more grounded in the new Riverdale. The best part is always Jughead's imagination, but the juxtaposition against reality is what makes it so fun.
The Jem and the Holograms Holiday Special is a pleasant addition to holiday themed comics. Jem and the Holograms has been one of those series that makes comics, especially licensed comics, fun to read and something to tell friends that they have to read. It's also one of those series that you want to make certain your daughters read. So let's dive into the Holiday Special and see what it has in store for us.
One of the must reads for any science fiction fan is Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Phillip K. Dick. The most proper film adaptation is the director's cut of Ridley Scott's 1982 film Blade Runner. For a comics adaptation, you need to read the 24 issue series published by BOOM! Studios starting in 2009. It was even nominated for an Eisner in 2010 for "Best New Series." If you really wanted to read the series, tracking down all of the issues or collected editions (four hardcover, six paperback) could be daunting. BOOM! Studios has your back, releasing this week an Omnibus edition of all 24 issues in one book.
Adam Warren's Empowered is one of those series that remains a unique dichotomy. Adam Warren's style lends itself to the hyper-sexualized artwork we've come to expect from super hero comics. Empowered as a character is defined by her propensity to get captured, bound and gagged by super villains. Along the way, Adam Warren has shown Emp to grow into a very confident heroine capable of defending her image and the perception of female super heroes everywhere. The latest special is entirely by Adam Warren, making it unique among the specials that have come out.
I was a little disappointed by the first issue of Jughead, but with the second issue promising the return of the Time Police, I just had to read Jughead #2. Would it delivery the quality that I've come to expect from Chip Zdarsky, much less the quality I'm currently expecting from Archie Comics? If I told you now, there'd be no reason for you keep reading, would there?
Dark Horse has a new series coming in December, Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, and The Bird, that has the genre-expanding style you’ve come to expect from one of the top five publishers in the industry. This promises a hard-boiled southern crime drama mixed with a little of the supernatural. Alabaster: The Good, The Bad, and
One of the surprises for me this year has been the relaunched Archie series by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. Archie Comics has been kind enough to send us some teaser pages. I'm calling them teasers because we're only seeing the art, which includes one of the first interactions between Archie and Veronica. I'm really waiting to read this, so check them out, and assume that we'll have a review as soon as we can before the September 30 release date.
It's a light week for Dynamite Comics this week, but after the hectic publishing schedule that they've had this summer with the Swords of Sorrow event, I think fans of their comics will welcome a lighter week. Check out the Dynamite Comics previews below.
I'm always on the lookout for something new, so when I saw the previews come in for Power Up, by Kate Leth (Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time: Seeing Red) and Matt Cummings (Adventure Time), I was sure to give it a shot. How is it? Read on, preview pages follow the review.
We get review copies from several companies in our e-mail every week, and in most cases, we don't review them because of the comics review policy we have of using reviews to promote the best that comics have to offer unless a comic is being so heavily promoted that it's in the interest of our readers for us to review them. This week, Dynamite sent us some review copies and I decided to take a loot at a Red Sonja special, Red Sonja 1973, which has several short stories featuring the She-Devil With A Sword as she was called back shortly after her 1973 debut.
Lumberjanes won two Eisner awards at San Diego Comic-Con, which means that its way past time for us to do a proper review of an issue. This series has gotten a lot of positive word of mouth, but is more directed to teenage girls, so I might not be the target audience for it. However, I do appreciate good comics, so if it's as good as people say, my age and gender shouldn't matter.
